Saint Luke’s Health System congratulates Tom Wagstaff and Greg Bentz, who were both recognized this year for their exceptional board service and commitment to health care in our region. Tom was recognized in November as Missouri Hospital Association Trustee of the Year, and Greg was honored in September as Kansas Hospital Association Trustee of the Year.

Estes, MD. “But the incredible honor to have two recognized—on both sides of the state line—is a true accomplishment. These trustees are being recognized for their volunteer spirit, expertise, dedication, and commitment to exceptional health care for the residents of Kansas and Missouri. In essence, Tom and Greg go far beyond the call of duty to make our organization the best it can be.”
Both men are longtime Saint Luke’s board members.
